hi alison,thanks for your message. i am working with adults from a mild to moderate learning disability. we started quite a few projects, all different in length, some of them were only a day long others took several weeks. mainly i tried to improve their creativity and visual skills. some projects had "side effects" meaning that these projects also touched other fields like literacy skills, improving their memory etc. they are very interested in it. at the moment i work with a smaller group using the darkroom to print our own pictures using different creative techniques. this has proven to be very successful. they are "hooked" on it which is great to see. next year we will have to chance to hold an exhibition. |
do you also use photography with your clients? how do you make use of it?
